The lighting is very attractive and the composition also. The ripples in the wet sand make a superb lead-line toward the chalk cliff face. Delightful sky. Technical quality is excellent.

Une très belle composition verticale, une superbe lumière combinée avec l'eau.
Graphisme intéressant des vaguelettes de sable.

What a fine capture of a scene that poses some extreme challenges, with the bright highlights on the chalk cliff and the shadows between and below the rocks. You display great facility for pattern (the sand ripples) and its compositional placement (leading the viewer's eye vertically through the image). Well done!
If I must pick nits... On my monitor (and the fault may, indeed, be here!), some of the brightest highlights in the chalk are overexposed, so all detail there is lost. Still, this is a minor quibble, and may simply be the necessary compromise that allows us to see all the detail in the shadows!

I'm not a very technical writer, but I sure like this interesting shot, Agnes.
The last time I same the white cliffs of dover, from the deck of a ferry boat, a storm was passing through, so the view was rather ruined.
Lovely catch & thanks for sharing.

Wonderful framing in the vertical format for this lovely beach view with fine colours and sharp details. Excellent pov that underscores the patterns on the sand. The white cliffs make a perfect focal point.

what a beautiful place. The sand with the waves forms. the water made a nice mirror. And the rock coast is very charming. I think a photo from the top of it could result in beautiful images.

There is atmosphere of bitter chilling cold captured in the photo, if for no other reason than the fact that the beach is completely deserted. Are those chalk cliffs in the background?

Not the Botany Bay that I know in OZ, but beautiful nonetheless. Good choice of vertical format, and authentic natural colours.

Lep pogled i trenutak ...
Dobar trenutak snimka, kontrast, ostrina i perspektiva, lepo pokazana Botany Bay.
Dobar rad, lepo uhvacen trenutak sa svetlom koje je naglasilo lepotu mesta.
Prijatno vece i sve najbolje.

Attractive winter Botany Bay scene, with the sand ripple patterns traversing to the distant white cliffs.
Reminds me of a series of beach sand patterns I did in a college photography class many moons ago.
Thank you for sharing,

The angled diagonal ripples in the wet sand add both dynamism and deep lead in lines and perspective. Good sharpness and the bg chalk cliff makes a fine focal point positioned over the vanishing point. Perhaps a slight rotation to the left so that the horizon is straight. A splendid warm cold colour contrast too between the blue sky and reddish yellow sand. Tfs.

Hello dear Agnes
What an impressive photo. You have done so well here. The strong vertical ridges in the sand lead the eye into the frame perfectly. They also lead the eye towards those marvellous icons, the white cliffs. Excellent vertical frame too, which accentuates those vertical lines. Superb work.

Splendid capture, and you call yourself an amature, I so no your not. Very well done with detail in every pixel. Love the perspective and format. Well done Agnes!

The photo here could only be in England, I think. It is in Kent, I see. Not Dover, but a bit up the coast towards North.
It is a beautiful shot ofthe steep cliff and the shore. I like the rippled brown sand and the pepples and the pale winters light. Great compo and POV. Not a bad place for a walk!!

I like it. I'm surprised about the location name "Botany Bay". Where is it in UK. I know only beautiful and not cold Sydney's Botany Bay.
Excellent sea view in superb light and nice reflections.
The white shore rock is very good focal point in this beautiful photo.
Very well done.
Greetings from Malaysia,

Hi Agnes. Very strong image with excellent details, lovely light and a sense of space and purity. Even the seagulls are enjoying the sight. Regards. Klaudio.
